Eligibility In 2010, the CHS was pleased to award $4,000 scholarships / bursaries to seven outstanding applicants. The award categories are as follows: * scholarship based on academic merit * bursary based on financial need * mature student bursary.
The program is open to Canadians with hemophilia (factor VIII or IX) or another inherited bleeding disorder (such as von Willebrand disease, a rare factor deficiency or platelet function disorder), carriers, and those who contracted HIV through a blood transfusion. Spouses and children of the above mentioned people may also apply. Those who have received a CHS Scholarship or Bursary are not eligible to reapply for continued support.
Specific Criteria for Scholarhips As scholarships are awarded for academic merit and are generally recognized as such in both the academic and business communities, the successful applicant for the Canadian Hemophilia Society scholarship must meet the following criteria: 1. Superior academic achievement, that being an average of at least 80%, or a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, upon graduation from secondary school. Transcripts of grades must accompany the application.
Specific Criteria for Bursaries Recognizing that not all prospective students show outstanding academic achievement in secondary school, and acknowledging the fact that some students find it extremely difficult to afford a post-secondary education, the Canadian Hemophilia Society offers a non-academic bursary to those who meet the following criteria: 1. A demonstration of financial need: the applicants must submit a detailed budget showing their sources of income and their projected expenses for a year of study at the institution of their choice. It is expected that the applicants will provide some monies toward their education.
Specific Criteria for Mature Student Bursary 1. A demonstration of financial need: the applicants must submit a detailed budget showing their sources of income and their projected expenses for a year of study at the institution of their choice. It is expected that the applicants will provide some monies toward their education. 2. Proof of age. The applicant must be at least 30 years of age in order to qualify for the mature student bursary. 3. A statement of intent. The applicant must supply a document (a short essay will do) that details what his or her past employment has been, what the proposed career change will offer, and a personal assessment of how the new career will affect the applicant’s lifestyle. 4. Applicants must provide three (3) letters of reference with their application, none of which may be from a relative. Such letters should attest to the abilities and suitability of the candidate for the Program being applied for as well as act as a character reference for the candidate. Suitable referees might be a principal, teacher, coach, employer or clergyman. 5. The applicant must provide a separate letter from his/her physician or some medical authority confirming their medical status regarding eligibility to this program (or that of their spouse or parent). This is in addition to the three letters of reference.
